Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents arrested a Port Barre resident on Nov. 12 for alleged night hunting and drug violations in St. Landry Parish.

Agents observed Randy Guillory, 55, hunting wild quadrupeds off a public road outside of Part Barre.  Agents then stopped the truck being driven by Guillory.  Upon coming in contact with Guillory, agents found an illegal narcotic, methadone, and cited Guillory for driving a vehicle under the influence (DUI).

Agents charged Guillory with illegal possession of a schedule II narcotic in the presence of a firearm, DUI, hunting wild quadrupeds during illegal hours and discharging a firearm from a public road.  Guillory was booked into the St. Landry Parish Jail.

Illegal possession of schedule II drugs carries a fine up to $5,000 or jail time between two and five years.  Driving under the influence brings a fine of $300 to $1,000 and between 10 days and six months in jail.  Hunting from a public road and during illegal hours carries a fine between $250 and $500 and up to 90 days in jail for each offense.

Agents involved in the investigation were Senior Agents Ryan Faul and Channing Duval.
